Everyone believes that education is important. But educating girls is more than social justice. It gives them a voice of their own. They can protect themselves from violence better, they can get more rewarding opportunities to help their families and can participate more in the society. Educating girls will help in attributing a better and peaceful society. This will make the world move forward.
One such person who has become a role model for her tribe is Pramila Sori. When we think about tribal people, we know that they are usually poor and live in meager conditions. Pramila, a girl from Kulhadighat, a secluded village in Chhattisgarh, was the first woman to ever go to college from her tribe.
With only her mother at home, she understood the difficulty of facing money issues. Pramila took the opportunity of 'Post Matriculation Scholarship' from the government and decided to do her B.A degree from Manipur College. She also does labor work to support her family while her mother and sister make materials out of bamboo.
Her Principal considered Pramila's admission in his college very significant, knowing her conditions. He knows that people like Pramila behave like role models in other people's life. Her path to success is filled with hurdles, but she is convinced that she wants to be a part of a successful future of this country. Despite failing in her high school classes, she didn't give up. Her spirit to study was overwhelming.
Today, every organization admits that women's education will help the country progress. Pramila made an example out of that.
